    Hello,

    First off HOLY COW what an amazing piece of software. I am truely impressed. I am in love with it already.

    To my question. I can’t seem to find the playlist section in my webadmin control panel.

    I am running
    mt-daapd — 0.2.4
    Linux FC 5 i686-pc-linux-gnu

    Everything else works perfectly. Just this small issue.

    Thanks,

    coolbeansdude51

    To edit smart playlists, it’s on the tab marked “smart” on the web admin.

    Aah, sorry… didn’t read your post well. The playlists on 0.2.4 are edited in the playlist file. There is a sample playlist in the distribution under contrib called mt-daapd.playlist (which your package probably put in /etc).

    So basically, copy the contrib/mt-daapd.playlist to the /etc directory (if it isn’t already there) and make sure you have a line in your config file like:


    playlist /etc/mt-daapd.playlist

    You can look at the playlist file for examples of playlists and syntax and stuff.

    The web based editing is only on the nightlies (http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org).

    Hi
    I am new with mt-daapd, it’s work fine with amarok, thanks a lot
    But, I viewed the posts, still no idea of playlist

    I am sure there is mt-daapd.playlist in /etc, and I did not edit any more
    I am still sure “playlist /etc/mt-daapd.playlist” in /etc/mt-daapd.conf, and did some edits

    Is the playlist would be in webadmin? Now I can not find any playlist

    Thanks a again.

    If this is version 0.2.4, then the /etc/mt-daapd.playlist is the file to edit. You will have to stop and start the server for the playlist to take effect.

    The playlist is only in the webadmin if you are running a newer version that 0.2.4. Either from the nightlies page or from a debian or gentoo package that is newer than 0.2.4.

    Thanks for you reply
    You mean, I have to edit /etc/mt-daapd.playlist? Is there any example?

    BTW: Could I use mt-daapd to share my music to remote user for downloading?

    You have to stop and start the server for it to take effect.

    Also, you are running the server as “nobody”, but serving files from your home directory. Unless your home directory is world readable, the “nobody” user won’t be able to read any files.

    Might either move the music files out of your home directory, or run your music server as your user.

    Many thanks about your kindly reply.
    Of course I restart the server after editing .conf file.

    From mt-daapd server, my amarok could find my shared music, and play the share music well.

    I changed runas as nobody user even as root, but still no changes, also I changed directory.

    Aaaah… I’m not sure amarok retrieves the playlists. Neither does rhythmbox. I’m not sure about banshee. Not sure why that is — it might be that they don’t have to concept of remote playlists, only locally generated playlists.

    In any event, that’s an amarok thing. It may be that you can define smart playlists on the amarok side, though. I’m not really sure.

    Hi Ron, something new here. Maybe it is not about mt-daapd.
    I installed daap kioslave, therefore my konqeror support daap now.But very strange that remote client could see the playlist from my server in konq via daap ioslave, but myself can’t.

    Do you have some advice?

    BTW: playlist on webadmin still none,but I think it doesn’t matter. Thanks for you help.

    The server sends the playlists to whoever wants them. It might be that the kioslave *does* something with the playlists it’s given, but amarok just ignores them. That’s my guess.
